One possibility might be to set up a local website and have the pocketPCs
communicate . Using windows I get internet access on my pda when its
connected through usb. On the other hand, I'm not sure if you can have
multiple computers connected via one irda port.

I don't want to pretend to know what I'm doing but it seems like an
interesting idea. I'm not quite sure that I understand what the big
picture is though.

> I own Axim X5 (thinking of getting few more) and have a friend that is
> expert Python programer with whome I might try to test this scenario:
> 1) Have 4 (up to 8) Axim X5 devices running PocketPC 2003,
> 2) single PC running whatever (Windows/Linux/MacOSX)
> 3) connect them through IrDa connection to PC
> 4) get them to display in full screen locally storred images
> 5) when any of them is touched - notify PC which would send update to
> the devices what would be the next image to display...
> So what is needed is:
> * (reliable) way to communicate fast (tiny amount of info on images)
> in-between individual devices and PC and back
> * software that would display in full screen images and videos
> (hopefully open source so it can be made to send out signals on
> interaction with PC and pick up images without relaying much on system
> software)
> Anyone done anything similar or has ideas on how to approach this?
